The Symposium will focus on three major research areas which are strongly related, namely visual programming, multimedia applications and software engineering. Several benefits can derive from the use of visual and multimedia technology for the development and maintenance of software artifacts, and, at the same time, there is an urgent demand for appropriate software engineering methodologies able to support an effective development of visual and multimedia systems.
The symposium is meant to provide an international forum for active researchers and practitioners coming from several research areas, including programming languages, software engineering, multimedia, human-computer interaction, computer-aided design, database systems, geographical information systems. Participants are solicited from both the industrial and the academic worlds.
Various types of contributions are expected, including research papers, lessons learned, status reports, and discussions of practical problems, in all areas related to multimedia and visual approaches to programming and software engineering.

The symposium is one of the integrated set of HCC'01 symposia focused on the design, formalization, implementation, and evaluation of computing languages and environments that are easier to learn, easier to use, and easier to understand by a broader group of people. Some of these people are end users, some are professional programmers or software engineers, and some are children. HCC'01 replaces thereby the IEEE Visual Language Symposium series and broadens the spectrum of addressed research topics including theoretical, practical, and empirical work concerning language/environmental design aspects, multimedia, virtual reality or web-based technologies as well as any related software modeling or visualization approaches.
Original research papers should make clear what new contribution the work makes, and how the work differs from related work. In addition to research papers (max. 8 pages), poster papers (2 pages) are solicited. All papers should be in IEEE 2-column conference publication format (for details see the HCC'01 call for papers). Accepted papers will appear in proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society.
Submissions should be sent until March 31, 2001 via email, in Postscript or PDF format, to
Genoveffa Tortora <email@example.com>
or by regular mail to
Dip. di Matematica e Informatica
Universita' di Salerno
